3. Description:

Adobe Reader allows users to view and print documents in Portable Document
Format (PDF).

This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Reader. These
vulnerabilities are detailed on the Adobe security pages APSA10-01 and
APSB10-15, listed in the References section. A specially-crafted PDF file
could cause Adobe Reader to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code
as the user running Adobe Reader when opened. (CVE-2010-1240,
CVE-2010-1285, CVE-2010-1295, CVE-2010-1297, CVE-2010-2168, CVE-2010-2201,

CVE-2010-2212)

All Adobe Reader users should install these updated packages. They contain
Adobe Reader version 9.3.3, which is not vulnerable to these issues. All
running instances of Adobe Reader must be restarted for the update to take
effect.
